Perl Programming Sample Work

I had an interview for a Perl programming position the other day, but I got stuck on their request for sample code showing my Perl programming skills. I have done Perl programming for eight years, but their requirements for sample work did not seem to match anything I had done. I finally found something I could show, but I wasn’t entirely pleased with it. Therefore, I posted a meditation to Perl Monks asking how they would Show Sample Source Code without Modules

Maybe my fellow monks can offer some suggestions for next time. (All though, I would really like to get the job I interviewed for.)
